Clinton´s Testimony & Case
for More Embassy Security

International Business Times, by Joanne Butler

Original Article

Posted By:JoanneButler, 1/23/2013 4:41:41 PM

Secretary of State Clinton’s testimony Wednesday is really about the need for more funding to physically strengthen United States embassies. As a penny-pinching Republican, you might be surprised to learn I think this is a good idea. Having worked with a former Iranian U.S. hostage from 1979 -- the Canadians smuggled him out -- and a lucky U.S. foreign affairs officer who happened to be in a meeting elsewhere when our embassy in Kenya was blown up in 1998, this matter is personal to me. And when I think what it was like working at the U.S. House on Sept.11, my feelings grow that much

What´s the point of us having a consulate in a war zone like Benghazi?
Isn´t that like the Libyans having a consulate in a war zone like Chicago?

Is it just my imagination, or is Congress afraid to put this lying whore under oath?

If you want to go to work for the government, just go ahead and do it, but you´d better understand that none of the people in Washington, of any strip, color or party, really give a damn about about you any ore than they do the people who are footing the bill. If there´s any money, power or prestige for them attached to some event, you can bet they´ll shoot the legs out from under you in a heartbeat just to be able to obtain it. That´s how it all really works.

Appears her testimony makes a case for her to be held for psychiatric observation.

The money was never a factor in the decisions made. That was admitted by the State Dept. not long after the attack.

That fact makes this article suspect from the "git go".

They have the money but chose to spend it on parties and waste. So now they want more money. No thanks on that deal

#8,most of us thoought the marines were armed guards. but the reality is that they are mostly symbols of security, with unloaded weapons.
And hillary said something was was truthful, among her lie, and here it is.
The u.s. embassy folks are really at the mercy of the host country. but the additional truth to that is that we never should have our embassy folks in an unstable country. That is just plain stupid, with lots of wishful thinking by the U.S. added in.
The brits bailed out of benghazi, as did the international red cross. perhaps hillary missed out on that critical information while she was doing wine tasting in various countries.
No one was in charge at State. No one!
And that Board that investigated the benghazi mess didn´t interview Hillary!
Why not? Hillary said that if the Board thought she could add information to their findings, they would have requested an interview with her! How crazy is that??

Will this continue throughout Obama´s presidency! He has caused more turmoil and discontent than all the previous occupants of the White House.

Seems the only sin for the Libs is "getting caught"!

Obama has continually done all he is able to, knowing exactly what he is doing, to destroy America.

Congress needs to stand up for righteousness, not political-correctness!

Hillary may think she got by today, but her day is still ahead of her when God has the last word and she won´t like it. He knows the truth and mostly, He knows her heart/mind/soul/spirit!

Congress, the White House as well as the Judiciary all need to know that they are supposed to represent US, their employer and the one who pays their salaries!

Prayer alone is our own salvation, knowing God hears and will act when we sincerely, humbly come to Him for His intercesson.

Obama may think he is above the law, but God is still sovereign and He will have the last word. Amen (So be it) The sooner the better!

An Easier Fix for Medicare
International Business Times, by Joanne Butler    Original Article
Posted By: JoanneButler- 3/10/2013 5:09:54 PM     Post Reply
The latest Republican pronouncements on saving Medicare, via Rep. Paul Ryan’s upcoming budget plan, reminds me of a Roger Rabbit cartoon -- characters careening around, some just missing the vat of acid, others not. Last year, certain Republicans told us if you were 55 or older, your Medicare benefits would be “safe,” but today’s rumors revise that age to be upward of 57. I can smell that vat of acid getting closer. But there’s a much easier way to reduce Medicare costs. Honestly, it won’t hurt a bit.

Pulling the Plug on Federal Agencies´ TVs

Back in the 1980s, a friend of mine was laid off from a defense contractor. That night he unplugged the cable box to his TV — to send his family a message that things were going to be tough for a while. I suggest that, especially in light of the sequester, the federal government follow my friend’s example and get busy pulling the plug on unnecessary televisions and cable TV contracts.

My Afternoon with Chuck Hagel

From my perch in Delaware, I can only marvel at how faded pols suddenly become white-hot in the blink of an eye. Take former Senator Chuck Hagel, for instance. I met him once back in 1999, early in his first Senate term. I’ve met many politicians in my career, but I won’t soon forget that afternoon in Hagel’s office.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Has Rush Limbaugh Finally

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you
